Setfocus on a datasheet view

    I have a subform in datasheet view which consists of a Date and a Quantity.
    When the first date is entered, it automatically sets the following date to
    be one week ahead. I would like to have the focus set on the Quantity column
    so that the user does not have to hit enter twice to get to the Quantity.
    Note that after entering the Quantity, the cursor jumps to the Date column
    which is automatically filled in.

    I tried Quantity.setfocus on the afterupdate event of the Quantity control
    but that doesn't seem to work.

    Try setting TabStop = No, on the first column.

    If the user can't edit tis fields you can set this fields properties
    Locked = Yes
    Enabled = False

    The user should be able to change the start date so I just set the tab stop
    to NO.
    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll actually use it in another part of my D/B.
